REVIEW: Tricky Twenty Two by Janet Evanovich
The rest of the gang is back as readers would expect. As Stephanie's sidekick, Lula once again reaps a good dose of laughs as does Grandma Mazur. Stephanie's love life is still a mess. Resident 'hot cop', Joe Morelli dumps her but there's certainly more to the story; the only question is whether she'll find solace with Ranger in the meantime.
Honestly, I was super disappointed with this book. I know some readers never wantthe series to end but I do. Books 1 to say 15 or 16 we great--hilarity mixed with great characters and mystery elements. Over the last few years the formula is waning. Stephanie and the crew never change or develop in a way that's satisfying for me as a reader. Sure, I still laugh but the laughs are fewer and far between than they used to be. This book ends with a possible turn, but it doesn't seem like even the characters take it all that seriously.
Final rating: 2.5 out of 5 stars
